Electronics, Computer Technology, Communications & Software
The digital revolution has changed many facets of society. The microcomputer, digital electronics and computer software are fundamental to understanding 21st-century technology. Consumer electronics to industrial processes, transportation to communications and the electronics you carry in your pocket or purse are all part of the infrastructure that fuels the world’s economy.
N&V attorneys have the hands-on expertise in:
- Electrical and electronics technologies (both analog and digital).
- Wireless, data communications and computer hardware, architecture and computer software technologies.
- Due diligence research, studies, opinions.
This experience is critically important where less than a comprehensive understanding of complex technology can result in a less efficient or less than optimal legal result. Whether you have a lawsuit to bring or defend, a new invention to patent, a licensing or opinion matter, or other IP legal task at hand (e.g., a due diligence study of the IP portfolio for a possible take-over target), our experienced attorneys possess the superb technical training and experience to quickly understand the relevant technology and apply the law to the technical facts. N&V attorneys help you solve your problem or develop new intellectual property assets.
When N&V undertakes a task requiring an in-depth understanding of complex technology, our goal is to have the inventor(s) and/or other technical experts know that the firm can follow along and understand the technologies just as well as their fellow peers.
Sometimes, from our “outside” vantage point, N&V even offers technical insights and suggestions that had previously not been considered or included. The difference is that our attorneys also understand the related legal issues that need to be tackled – and how to tackle them for an efficient and successful result.
